Nice newer hotel, ask for a room overlooking the bay for a nice view. The rooms are very nice also. Good room for the price if you're staying in Sarasota. The continental breakfast could have a few more options, though.

Room was OK, but sofa bed was tucked behind the a/c unit and could not be used as a fold-out. Carpet needs to be cleaned. King bed was comfortable. The bath layout is split, which makes it difficult for family stays and privacy. Staff was friendly and accommodating. No water or snack for Elite client, even with a 3-week stay. Area was near the picturesque Sarasota Bay, but really looked to be in a shabbier part of town. There was a nighttime security guard, which was reassuring...I think. I would recommend this hotel, overall, but some general improvements need to be made before it could be rated Very Good.

I had an excellent experience here at this hotel. It was very clean, the beds were so very comfortable and WIFI was great. The staff was very friendly and my stay went by so smoothly. The price of my week long stay was very affordable. I will definitely use La Quinta again in the future.

We have stayed at this hotel before, and while the staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean, and the hotel is near activities and the airport, it is beginning to look "tired". It is time for a makeover at this hotel.

The bathroom was dirty and no water pressure in the shower. The coffee maker was basically a hot water heater caked with calcium build-up. The freezer was too small to use due to the amount of frost build-up. The microwave barely fit a take-out container in it. One very small complimentary bottle of shampoo, but no other hair/cleansing product. Two flimsy paper cups were the only drinking vessels. The desk chair was all stained. On a better note, the beds were comfortable

My wife and I generally seek out La Quinta Inns when we travel but were a little disappointed this time. The room overall was clean but on closer inspection of the bath and sink area we found several hairs scattered around. I went out into the hallway where there was a housekeeping cart we had passed on our way in (and got a dirty look from the housekeeper when I had to move it a bit to get by with our bags). I wanted to ask for a couple of extra washcloths to clean the sink. I could not find the housekeeper so I helped myself, just in time to be scolded by her as she came out of another room, even after I explained myself. I did not appreciate the attitude. Also very poor selection at breakfast. Fruit was gone by 8:00am and not much else available.
